July is National Picnic Month, and what better way to celebrate than to pack a little “brain food” (aka books!) with your sandwiches and iced tea? Whether you’re in the mood for a taste of sci-fi, a bite-size portion of the cosmos, or heaping portions of romance or nature, you’ll find the perfect book to read while dining outdoors right here in this list from Writer’s Relief.

5 Books To Read While On A Picnic

 

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson: Here’s a read that will introduce you to the history and ecology of the Appalachian Trail, which spans some of the most breathtaking terrain in America. Bryson introduces readers to some of the interesting folks he meets along the way…and a couple of bears, naturally!

 

The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu: This beloved Hugo Award-winning epic comes from China’s most beloved sci-fi author. During China’s Cultural Revolution, a secret military project makes contact with an alien civilization who plans to invade Earth.

Walden by Henry David Thoreau: The ultimate picnic read, Thoreau’s Walden is a tribute to living life off the grid—something we can all use a bit of in today’s hectic, social media-crazy world. So put down that cell phone and pick up an actual book!

 

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss: A long-lost book resurfaces and mysteriously connects an old man who is searching for his son, and a girl who is seeking to cure her widowed mother’s loneliness. Get ready for a satisfying story that pulls at the heartstrings!

 

Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson: As you contemplate the cloudless blue sky during a light picnic meal, you may not think it’s the ideal time to also contemplate your place in the universe—but our favorite astrophysicist makes this complex subject easy to swallow. From the big bang to black holes, Tyson explains it all with wit in easily digestible chapters for a read that’s perfect anytime, anywhere.

    This is such a unique post idea! Thanks for the selection.
    From all of these books I’ve read only Walden (classic, duh!). I’m looking forward to reading the rest of them.

    That’s quite a collection you are presenting. I have read some of them not all of them but the ones i have read are great.

    Your cerebrum may not adore what we call “sugar,” but rather it loves glucose. Glucose is the thing that your body makes out of sugar and carbs. What’s more, a little lift in glucose can support your fixation and sharpness.
